New Year's Day one-punch attacker loses appeal

ln court justice

A Braddon man convicted of a New Year's morning one-punch attack last year has lost an appeal.

Jordan Sharma, 20 years old at the time, turned himself in after drunkenly punching a man in the face - who went on to have his jaw wired shut with a titanium plate and 4 screws.

Sharma's lawyer argued the full-time jail sentence for recklessly inflicting grievous bodily harm was too rough.

But Justice Elkaim said deterrence is necessary and Sharma will stay behind bars until 2019.
